Mothers – we all have them, and when we reflect on these amazing women, we smile. Women that give their 24 hours a day to the ones they love. These amazing women often think about everyone else before they thinking about themselves.
I am blessed, to have a mother of strength, and one that has always been there for me for anything I ever needed. She has always been there through the dark times, and the light times. I cannot imagine my life without her and am so very proud to call her my mother.We have been through the good, the bad and the ugly. Every step of the way, each one of us has been strength for the other. There are so many moments I will not forget, and moments that I felt like my mom put up with so much from me. Every time she would turn the cheek and shower me with love and forgiveness. My mom has showered me with unconditional love my entire life, and if I can be half of the mother she is – I would do a fantastic job.
Together we have learnt reliance on something greater than ourselves to get through the hard times, and in the good times we are so grateful for each other. Day after day God shows me His gentle hand. He is always there, and always promises triumph. God is in control and has shown us so many miracles, and much love.
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
We are meant for an abundant life, if we learn that we are not in control – that He is there to lead, lift, carry and hold. I thank Him every day for the perspective in the pain, and the love that always shows through. I thank God for blessing me with a mother that loves me unconditionally and is always there for me.
Today lets all reflect on how amazing our mothers are. For those of you that have children, we tend to be hard on ourselves on our ability to “mother”. We are our worst critics… Remember to always give yourself a basket of grace. REST.
I adore my mother, she is a testament of strength and has a heart full of gold. She has always put others before herself (sound familiar)?? In dedication to this amazing woman, I thought I would write a poem to capture my thoughts.
